Manchester United Goes for Third Consecutive Home Win Against TottenhamPublished December 11, 2016 by Florin P
Manchester United tries to keep its Champions League dreams alive by winning against Tottenham at Old Trafford (2:15 p.m UK Time).
Manchester United is quickly fading in the Premier League and their chances of winning the trophy have all but vanished. Mourinho needs to adjust his team’s forecast downwards and try to secure a Champions League berth at the end of the season. One way to achieve that is by winning games against other teams competing for the same prize. Tottenham is one of them and the Londoners come visiting on Sunday.
Lopsided Victories at Old Trafford
Manchester United was lucky enough as to play four consecutive games at Old Trafford and won twice. On both occasions they managed to score 4 goals after featuring an offensive starting formation with three strikers. Granted they were less successful against tougher opponents such as Arsenal, they dominated all those fixtures and should have won the matches.
Their Europa League match on the road against Zorya didn’t put a big dent into Mourinho’s plans for this fixture. His recent victories in the group stage allow the Portuguese manager to rest keep players. This means, that the best starting formation will be available for this match, one that Manchester needs to win.
No Road Win in 10 Weeks
The last time Tottenham won on the road was in late September against newly promoted Middlesbrough. Their performance away from home was nothing short of abysmal and prevented them from climbing on the podium. Kane has returned to fitness and is already scoring goals at the same rate he did last year.
Unfortunately for the visitors, they’ve got a single player they can truly rely upon, whereas Manchester United has three gifted striker. This is not going to be a one-sided game, but online bettors are entitled to expect a match dominated by the Red Devils. bet365 Sports offers tempting odds of 1/1 on Manchester United to claim all three points and punters should take advantage.
